OptiBlur™ Elastomer

OptiBlur™ Elastomer is a viscous, high molecular weight combination of dimethicone, beeswax, and cosmetic powders designed to create luxurious products that include optical blurring and soft focus properties, such as color cosmetics, facial products, and moisturizers with a unique velvety texture and matte finish.

Its optical blurring properties help to mask fine lines and wrinkles, minimize the appearance ofpores, and offer a matte finish with a smooth, silky skin feel. It’s ideal for anhydrous or emulsified products, such as foundations, concealers, lip sticks, primers, serums, and moisturizers offering imperfection masking properties. For all skin types, it offers sebum control while moisturizing without oils.

OptiBlur™ Elastomer offers a lubricious skin feel that moisturizes without a feeling of greasiness. In use, it has a feel described as “silky’, “smooth”, or “dry” with a “ball bearing” effect attributed to the inclusion of silicone elastomer spheres coated by silica.

Key Benefits

  • Smooth, velvety feeling in anhydrous and water containing products
  • Designed for “soft focus” beauty products and primers
  • “Imperfection” masking
  • Masks fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimizes the appearance of pores
  • Offers a matte finish to products
  • High viscosity that can be thinned with silicones for primers
  • Can be processed warm or cold
  • Increases viscosity (non-aqueous)
  • Absorbs or controls sebum


  • Ideal for facial products where imperfection masking or a “hi-def” filter-like finish is desired
  • Color cosmetics, such as BB creams and contouring sticks as well as foundations and lip products
  • Optical blurring and “soft focus” beauty products
  • Primers
  • Facial care products - anhydrous or emulsion

  • Water-in-oil emulsions
  • Anhydrous products

Formulating Guidelines

  • OptiBlur™ Elastomer can be subjected to heat for a short period of time at no more than 60°C (140°F) to prevent the beeswax from melting.
  • As it contains volatile dimethicone fluids, process in a closed container if the temperature reaches or exceeds 60°C (140°F).
  • In the oil phase, ensure it is mixed well to ensure homogeneity.
  • In emulsions, ensure the product has sufficient viscosity to allow it to be dispersed adequately.
  • This elastomer can be thinned down by adding fluid dimethicone or cyclomethicone to the solubility level noted below.
  • It can be mixed using high shear stick blenders or homogenizers, or low shear hand mixers or blending by hand.


  • 20% OptiBlur™ Elastomer is miscible with 80% caprylic/capric triglycerides, isododecane, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, cyclomethicone, or phenyltrimethicone
  • 80% OptiBlur™ Elastomer is miscible with 20% phenyltrimethicone or cyclomethicone, but will separate with 20% caprylic/capric triglycerides, isododecane, or C12-15 alkyl benzoate.
  • It is soluble with natural oils, but should be tested in small batches to ensure homogeneity.

I love Lotioncrafter products. I just ordered the Shea Nilotica Butter for the first time and it is smooth, creamy and amazing. Great for my products! Delivery was quick and I received some extras. I will be ordering more soon. Thank you Lotioncrafter!
Sandy Bouie, (The Honey Pot)

Wow, I can't say enough about my experiences with this company.
I have been happy with everything I've ordered and their pricing is very competitive but it is the customer service that sets Lotioncrafter apart from other companies.
Orders are processed and shipped quicker than any other company I've ordered from & each time I've received a refund for lower shipping costs before I even noticed!
Any questions I've had were answered right away & even received a phone call to explain things more personally.
Thank you so much for the great work!

I have known Jennifer for many years and she has never steered me wrong. Often when experimenting to find the right product for my eyes I have had to rely on her expertise and not one single time has she not been available to help. You can't go wrong here, thankfully customer service is alive and thriving at Lotioncrafter.
